BayCon 2016 made the SETI Institute their designated charity to the proceeds for several fundraising events during the con. The SETI Institute is grateful for this support from BayCon and the entire science fiction fan community. BayCon member Mike Ward also stepped up and pledged a $1,000 match if SETI Institute raises another $1,000 from fans during BayCon 2016. BayCon members can go here to make a special contribution towards this effort. Thank you Mike Ward, and thank you BayCon 2016! It is all about space!
